Resolution Problem with 2 Optiquest Q19WBs and 1 GeForce 8600GT

I have 2 Optiquest Q19wb (Analog/VGA) LCD Monitors, running off of 1 XFX GeForce 8600GT Graphics Card (1 @ VGA Out, 1 @ DVI Out (w/adapter)), running on a GigaByte Motherboard.

I have been in contact with my MB, Graphics and Display Manufacturers, regarding 'Drivers', et al, and there has been alot of head scratching, but no resolution to my problem.

Whether I have EITHER of each Monitor hooked to either Output on the Card (1 at a time), or BOTH hooked to EITHER Output at the same time (2 at a time), if I go above 800x600 res on either Monitor, that Monitors Image moves DOWN & RIGHT, rather severly, and using the On-Screen Adjustment, does NOT help.

    I have Tried BOTH Monitors on another System I've got (Only 1 VGA Analog Out), AND Both Monitors on a friends System...



    I KNOW, that it's NOT the Card, since I have another 8600GT, and BOTH Cards, work in adjacent Systems.



    I'd HATE to think, that the Motherboard is causing, but, if so, I'll try an SLI Motherboard, with both of my GT's. BUT to fork over coin, on the chance and then STILL have the Problem, would ****, Big Time...

You could connect both monitors at a time but after installing the card drivers. the driver installation will enable you to achieve high resolution as well.

Possibly a problem with the monitors, have you tried other monitors with this? other than that a fault in the card or windows video positions are messed up, try adjusting the nvidia .. screen position.

Please help me my optiquest q19wb model #vs11443 is shuting off aftre 1 second i opened it and no capacier were damadged what is wrong... the unit is not old 2 years i am not rich and want to save...


The usual problem with this symptom is an CCFL power supply failure. The inverter is the board that powers the backlights so you can see what is on the screen. If you look really close and with a flashlight, you may be able to see the dark shadow of the image on the screen. Without the backlight, the LCD is useless.

You can get parts from places like http://www.lcdalternatives.com/ or eBay. Search for the model number and "repair" (e.g. "Optiquest Q19wb repair") on eBay.

Viewsonic Optiquest Q19wb lcd Monitor goes blank after 2 secs. A couple of posts say replace the 1000uf 16v Cap My problem is i can't find them on the pcb (where are they?)


Look at the board where the AC power connector comes in that is the power supply board, there are more than one versions so it nay not have the same caps value.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed Viewsonic/Optiquest monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Optiquest vs11201 monitor not above 640x480 resolution


You need to download the driver from DELL for your video card, my 3000 use video driver R79733.EXE.
You may have virus in your computer if you cannot update the drivers, sometime it is better to start from clean drive to help get rid of stuff that get installed into the computer.

Optiquest Q19wb - I accidentally hit the "auto" button and the display is completely off center to one side. If I turn it off/on, it goes the other way. The OSD controls do not allow me to completely...


1 use the install disk that came with the monitor.
If this does not work then you may have an issue with the electronics.
2. take unit to a certified technician to check the circuitry.
3. this could be a inverter gone bad.

Q19wb Monitor Replacement Part Numbers Needed


Look on eBay for "Optiquest Q19wb repair" or "Optiquest Q19wb power"

This is a common failure mode. You can either buy a set of capacitors and solder them in, or buy a replacement power supply board if you cannot solder.

One eBay seller notes the power board as an ILPI-025, which is common among the following models:

Power Board ILPI-025 For LG W1934S & Viewsonic VG1930WM & Optiquest Q19WB & Acer AL1916W Ab etc
Model:ILPI-025 REV:E 79069140

Just let Windows install IE 8 and now the desktop picture is over


Change the resolution. Right click in the middle of the screen over nothing, and select properties then select the settings tab and move the slider left for larger resolution.
